Fixation Product Highlights
AbsorbaTack™ Fixation Device
The AbsorbaTack™ 5 mm fixation device is a sterile, single use device for fixation of prosthetic material, such as hernia mesh, to soft tissue. The tack is constructed of an absorbable synthetic polyester copolymer derived from lactic and glycolic acid.
AbsorbaTack™ is offered in a long version for laparoscopic techniques in both 15 and 30 tack configurations, as well as a short version for open hernia repair in a 20 tack configuration.
ProTack™ Fixation Device
The ProTack™ 5 mm fixation device is a sterile, single use device for fixation of prosthetic material, such as hernia mesh, to soft tissue. The tack is helical and made of titanium. The ProTack™ device comes in a 30 tack configuration.
Endo Universal™ Stapler
The Endo Universal™ stapler has application in endoscopic hernia repair surgery procedures for fixation of mesh. The device can be rotated 360° around its axis and can be used in four different positions: unarticulated position at 0°, and articulated 20°, 45°, and 65°. The Endo Universal™ device comes pre-loaded with 10 titanium staples and can be reloaded 4 additional times the 4 mm or 4.8 mm single use loading kit (SULU). The device is designed for introduction and use through appropriately sized trocar sleeves, or larger sized trocar sleeves with the use of a converter.
Multifire Endo Hernia™ Stapler
The Multifire Endo Hernia™ stapler is designed for introduction and use through all appropriately sized trocar sleeves or larger sized trocar sleeves with the use of a converter. The size of the staples is determined by the selection of the 4mm or the 4.8mm single use loading kit (SULU). The stapler places one staple each time the handle of the instrument is squeezed. The staple legs first penetrate the tissue or mesh and then fully form, thus anchoring or approximating the tissue(s) and mesh.

Tacker™ Fixation Device
The Tacker™ 5 mm fixation device delivers helical titanium tacks for laparoscopic fixation of mesh in hernia repair.
